Chad Johnson has been arrested following allegations that he head-butted new wife Evelyn Lozada, who was taken to the hospital.
Chad is being accused of misdemeanor domestic battery, according to the Florida Sun Sentinel. Reports indicate that the newlyweds were in the car together in their driveway when the incident occurred.
When officers arrived on the scene, Evelyn had clear lacerations on her head, according to reports. However, Chad told authorities that the two bumped heads accidentally during a heated discussion.
Early reports indicated that the two began to argue after Chad found a receipt for condoms in Evelyn’s vehicle. However, it’s now believed that it was actually Evelyn who was questioning Chad about the item found in his car.
Evelyn and Chad’s new reality series, “Ev & Ocho,” is set to premiere on VH1 next month. It’s not clear whether the two—who have been married for little more than a month—are still taping for the show.
According to ESPN.com, Chad will have to remain in custody until he can see a judge.
Apparently, Chad’s future with the Miami Dolphins is in question following the incident.
"We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering all of the relevant information," a Miami Dolphins spokesperson told NFL.com.
